COMMENTS:
❤️ I used this in one of my Zoom lessons during the closure. I numbered the cards and had the kids randomly give me a number for each category: characters, setting, and problem. Then, in breakout rooms, the kids had to use their selections to create a group story! The stories were awesome. It really helped the kids see the importance of each part of a story.

❤️ I can't love this enough. My kids had a blast creating the stories from the different cards they picked and they ended up being some of the most creative pieces they have written.


❤️ My students always struggle with writing. They lack ideas and need a lot of scaffolding. Having this colourful, creative and practical resource allows me to engage my students and inject fun in the teaching of writing. I am so glad I found such a wonderful ready-made resource. Awesome. Thank you.


❤️ "This product is awesome!! I am an ESL teacher, and a lot of my students get discouraged while writing because of the difficulty due to the level of their language proficiency. I used these a couple of times already this week with my students (newcomers included, but I modified their writing for them) and they loved it! They enjoyed that they just got to have fun and be creative with their writing! Thank you!"

❤️ My kindergarten kids LOVED these during journal time! They allowed them to be so creative. Thank you!

ADD COLOR AND HUMOR TO YOUR WRITING CENTER WITH THESE CARD DECKS.

These colorful, humorous cards make creative writing fun, even for reluctant writers. Students select Character, Setting, and Problem cards and then weave the elements into their stories. Draw multiple characters, settings, and/or problems to make stories more complex! The variety of combinations is almost limitless. The process of the three prompts together leads to unique and fun stories.

Contents –You won't run out of ideas with the following:

✍ 120 setting cards

✍ 112 problem cards

✍ Writing stationery for both full sheets and interactive notebooks.

How I Use These Decks of Cards

• Students have fun weaving the three prompts together in their stories. The variety is endless!

• I keep the sets of cards in separate matching plastic baskets. That way, students know where the cards go after they’ve copied the character, setting, and problem onto a writing sheet (provided).

• At times when we need a class prompt for a quick write, I have one student pull a character (or more), one pull a setting, and one pull the problem. After we finish writing (including me), we share our stories. It’s fun to compare our stories!

• Near our writing center, I have a separate creative writing board where students can post their stories by fastening them along a fishing line with a clothespin.
